Mindy Kaling Is Creating a Hulu Series Based on ‘Four Weddings & a Funeral’

I don’t know about you, but British rom-coms from the ’90s and early 2000s are some of my favorite films ever. If you’ve seen anything starring Hugh Grant in his most beautiful days, you probably feel the same. The star got his big break in the 1994 film Four Weddings and a Funeral, permanently winning over my heart as the perfect British gentleman watching his friends get married.

Mindy Kaling has a similar fondness for rom-coms, and her newest project will use Four Weddings… as inspiration. The Hollywood Reporter says that Kaling is working on a Hulu anthology series remake of the film that will introduce a different storyline each season. With this in the works, I’m officially prepared for a world without The Mindy Project. 

Writing the show with her Mindy Project showrunner Matt Warburton, Kaling will also executive produce with Four Weddings writer Richard Curtis, who’s the mind behind films like Love Actually, Notting Hill and About Time. If that partnership isn’t enough to make you excited about this project, your heart is clearly made of ice. 

Nothing about the show’s casting or release date has been revealed yet, but I have so much faith in Kaling to make this absolutely amazing. This world needs a little more rom-com goodness.
